Hi,
This has probably been posted to death, but Glock does offer LE discount (about $100 per weapon) to Active and Retired Military. They also give the same discount to Fire/EMS. You have to buy from a stock LE Dealer. Call Glock, 770-432-1202 and they'll tell you who the stocking LE Dealers are in your state. Additionally, you'll get three mags w/ your pistol rather than the customary 2.
OK, also found a link, http://www.gssfonline.com/GSSF_PISTOL_PURCH_LIST.pdf which will give you your state's LE Dealers.

Makes me ill that I just bought a 19C for retail, but I was, and am, happy with the purchase.

I bought a 17 and 19 on this program just a few weeks ago!

I have said this before, their needs to be a sticky on this. I have bought my last 6 on this program. You can also buy directly from Glock if you don't have an LE dealer. Takes a little longer but it can be done.

Why firemen and EMS? They don't need them for duty. Why not postal employees and teachers too?

Neither does the military...I think it's more of a thank you.

The discount was extended to Firemen and EMS, among others, by what Glock called the America's Heroes discount. I'm pretty sure Firemen and EMS are unspoken American Heroes. The discount was born of the role certain people play in our society. This was especially highlighted during the 9/11 mass murder.

In that context, understood and agreed with.

It involves anyone directly involved with public safety. Glock's way of saying thank you to those who
serve, often in a volunteer capacity, sometimes putting their lives on the line that others may live.

Guess I would have to call to find out if
those if us in the Nuclear Security Ind. qualify aswell ???

as I'm looking for a G17

Postal employees already have 'em and teachers are all sexual predators (Felons) now... both flavors- crazy hot chick teacher and creepy old dude teacher.

The discount also applies if you work in an armed security role.

I work for an armored truck company and I got my G19 through the plan. I think I'll be going for a G26 next.

Funny how the Sheriff didn't notice that part of my record when he gave me my CCW. Maybe you have teachers confused with clergy.

No... that was the 1980's IIRC

The program is great. I bought a Glock 27 and my brother bought a Glock 22 this weekend both for
under $400 about a $150 savings as to what they are going for around here.
Other manufacters should step up and match the offer but eeven if they did
I would still buy Glcok becuase they are simply the best now they are one
of the cheapest with the discount. Thank you Glock

Glock will send the discounted gun to any FFL dealer of your choice. You will just have to pay another $10 in shipping. Besides, you can't buy a handgun in another state, save for a very few exceptions. Such as in the military stationed in another state which is not your home of record.
Link Posted: 2/24/2009 4:41:22 AM EDT
i didnt realize you could pick a dealer in your state and go through them. i thought i would have to buy it from a WA dealer and have it sent to my FFL here in MT

You may want to check again and tell them your job duties. Bunch of 911 dispatchers here in Guilford County all got their Glocks for the discount. I got my first one with my part-time 911 ID. Got the rest with my FD ID. I am proof they give it.

Won't hurt to ask again....

Ask your officers where they buy thiers at, I know that our local Glock Distributor would give our dispatchers the Cop price. They just like to make sure who you really are.

Link Posted: 2/25/2009 6:26:33 AM EDT
Its a way to say thank you. We risk our lives every day too.

He is violating Glock's policy.

A phone call to Glock will straighten him out.... unless he wants to lose being a Glock dealer.

Yep, they will pull his dealership for doing that. Glock takes that very seriously from what my dealer has told me.

Our LE Glock dealership said simiply a id card from a department would qualify, a PD secretary would qualify, a janitor if they had a ID would qualify, etc.

This is a good deal.

I am .mil, and have purchased a 26 and a 19 (with factory night sights) at $455.40 + tax each.

ETA: the subcompacts come with 2 mags and the rest (like my 19) come with 3 mags.

It would have saved me some serious coin a year ago.

i wish i would have know about this as well. last march i bought the wifie a glock 19 and we paid 550$. it was the only one my gun dealer could find and it so much because it came with a glock flashlight. i ended up selling the light and that helped out on the base price a bit...

The G-30 which is really not a subcompact also only comes with only 2 mags. Want to guess how I know...?

The G30 has always been listed as a sub-compact since its introduction.
